30th November 2013

Saturday, 30th November 2013

A bright and breezy autumn day, with the recent activity at Church norton attracting plenty of bird-watchers.

Church Norton: Another morning spent predominately along the beach/spit, produced the following offshore - still at least 4 Long-tailed Ducks, 7-8 Common Scoter, 8-10 Eider, 12+ Slavonian Grebes, a Red-throated Diver and a Goldeneye (with another 5 in the harbour). A big flock of Knot were in the harbour and a few Black-tailed and Bar-tailed Godwits present also, plus a Firecrest was seen in the churchyard.
A further look this afternoon on the low tide didn't add anything, but a female-type Marsh Harrier was hunting over the 1st Several. (AH)
